GBH in flight (+ note to my contacts)

I have trouble getting shots of these guys eating anything. Every time I approach, they take flight and move just beyond the range of my little 300mm zoom. I don't think I'll ever have a lens long enough. My next one will be a 400mm as the 5 and 6 are just too heavy to do the kind of photography that I enjoy, and too costly too! So here's yet another GBH taking flight to escape my camera. But I was prepared this time with a high shutter speed and successfully fired off a shot of him in mid air. Not the fishing shot I'd like to have... but it's beautiful nonetheless.

 

Happy Flickr Birthday to me!

Thanks to my contacts who never fail to make me smile and appreciate my hobby. It's been a year that I've been on Flickr now and I've met so many incredible people, learned so much about myself and my photography, and have managed to step outside my little world a bit each day through your images. It's truly been a pleasure to get to know you all. :)
